Relief from Sex Offender Registration

Relief from Sex Offender Registration

Ms. Burke’s client was headed to college and petitioned the court for relief from sex offender registration stemming from a juvenile conviction. For no reason other than the fact that the client would be in a college setting, the prosecutor opposed the motion to relieve the client from his duty to register. Ms. Burke presented evidence through experts that her client was no threat to community safety and should not be stigmatized on campus. The court agreed and relieved the client from his duty to register.
